It was the last day of the racing meet. The program was delightfully arranged, from the standpoint of those who were lucky. It was as fast a track as the meet haa known, and It was duly appreciated even by the people who watched but played not. Railway yards and the coaches stored for the return trips In the late evening disclosed the fact ttat there was a very large outBide attendance for the day. Probably no greater crowd, all around the race track, has watched the races. In the city many of the offices, following tho example of the banks, gave a half holiday, and the city people Were much In ev idence In the latter part of the day. From 11 o'clock until 4 ami from 5:30 to 8:30 o'clock the street car system was powibly. subjected to a heavier strain In handling the crowds than any other day has brought, The great Tootle ranch, following for aoventy-Fftcn wiles tho Rio Orande river at the border of Tex as and Mexico extending from a point seventy miles east of El Paso, was old to J. H. Adams of the Baltimore hotel, Kansas City, for a little more than hair a million dollars. There are more than 136.000 acres In the tract, much of which Is mountaln-uus. While Adanu appears as the pur chaser, tho Tootle estate selling dl rect to him, he made the purchaso for J. D. Cameron, who Is tho head or a syndicate that will come Into possession or the land a soon as the papers are rinally made out. It was not a spot, cash transaction tor the entire amount. It Is understood here that-10 per cent or the pur chase prlco constituted the cash pay ment, but the entire debt yet due Is to be liquidated at an early date. It. Is reported that the property Is already sold to a syndicate, most ly Oklahoma men, headed by J. D uanieron. it is the Intention of the syndicate to establish a com plete Irrigation system on the prop erty and then colonize It . TEXAN'S CLAIM HEEL FOOT LAKE Temple People Believe They Slionld Have Property and Take Steps, Temple, Texas, Oct. 31. The re cent excitement that has occurred ln the Reel Foot lake region or Ten nessee by night riders haa served to bring to notice the fact that title to the very section In which the dem onstrations are now occurring Is claimed by William Dickey of this city and his sister, Mrs. A. C. Buch anan, also of Temple. These parties claim to possess a deed to the lake handed down through a long line or ancestors, but tho title Is disputed, the 6tato or Tennessee having made the owner- Miip a suajeci or special legislation A copy o the deed haa been prepar ed and forwarded to attorneys In Chattanooga, Tenn.. by the claim ants, with Instructions to make a full report and to suggest what steps are necessary to secure possession of tho property. From the history 0f the lake It appears that it was caused to form by an earthquake which occurred In 1811, and It covers nearly all of tho land deeded to James Patterson, the X From the Houston Chronicle; Whether ho wins or Ioes th. Bryan's place ln history is secure. The Boy Orator of th. Fistic In isag became the Man from" Nebraska'" lb 1900 and the Creat Commoner in 1908. He has. grown as Gladstone grew, and the two Pitts; as Jeffer son and n8 Jackson. His hold on the people Is greater beeati'-o his love for them Is more profound. Bry an haa couio to love the American people better aa he has come to know them better, and tho people have come to love Bryan more as they have bocome better acquainted with hlni. The people have educated him in statesmanship. By devoting him- self to the people's Interests aud all public question, la hU editorship of his political weekly, by traveling around the world that he might learn of other nations, by his lectures and speeches, by studying the people's needs and learning their wants from them, assimilating the people', ideas, by meeting as many of his fellow countrymen ln all parts of the coun try as any man living, Bryan has come to a footing of friendship with tho peopio such as Is attained by rew public men, so that they trust him even ns he trusts them. The people believe In Bryan; Bryan be lieves in the people. H believes in government or the people, for the people, by the people, witness ln his principal speech ip Brook lyn, Bryan, "with dramatic effect and amid great cheering," according to the Associated Press report, de dared: "My rriends, you rauy vote me up or you may vote me down; you may elect me or you may de test me; .but the time will como wheu this country will enjoy the teller that we now try to bring,' and when that time comes, and politics is purlHed and elections and can vasses made honest, whether I am living or dead, history -will not de ny me credit for the part I took ln this .crusade tor new politics." Thb Is what makes Bryan's place In history secure, it is because he is the Great Commoner ot our day, ttie people's champion, the leader ln the crusade ror new polities.
